The best conversation at the show was with a farmer’s market grower from Canada. He was very well-versed in AAS Winners and had many success stories about his customers’ interest in AAS Winners and asking for them by variety name. When this grower was asked how he decided which new varieties to trial, he answered by saying his trust in the history and performance of AAS Winners always made them a safe choice. So we asked him how many varieties he usually starts with when growing something new to the market. He replied: “If it’s just any new variety, I’ll start with 50 plants. But, if it’s an AAS Winner, I’ll start with 500 plants.” Wow, is that a great testimonial or what?
